South China University of Technology
Introduction to South China University of Technology
Located in Guangzhou, South China University of Technology (华南理工大学, website) is a national key university directly under the Ministry of Education. The campus is divided into Wushan Campus, University City Campus, and Guangzhou International Campus. It is the first “National Civilized Campus” acquisition unit. The school runs a long history, the earliest can be traced back to the Guangdong Provincial First Grade A Industrial School established in 1918; it was officially established during the adjustment period of higher education institutions in China in 1952, and is one of the four major engineering colleges in New China; in 1960 it became a national key university; In 1981, it was approved by the State Council as the first batch of doctoral and master’s degree awarding units; in 1993, it was the first in the country to jointly build universities and provinces; in 1995 it entered the rank of “211 Project”; in 2001 it entered the rank of “985 Project”; in 2017 it was selected as ” The list of “double-class” construction of A-class universities ranked 2018-201 in the “World University Academic Rankings”.
Today, South China University of Technology has developed into a comprehensive research university with a strong understanding of science and technology, a combination of science, engineering, and medicine, and a coordinated development of disciplines such as management, economics, literature, and law. The overall level of disciplines such as light industry technology and engineering, architecture, food science and engineering, chemical engineering and technology, environmental science and engineering, materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering, management science and engineering has entered the top 10% of the country; 9 discipline areas Entered the top 1% of the international high-level subject ESI. Among them, engineering, materials science, chemistry, and agricultural science entered the top 1 ‰, and the number of selected students ranked 6th in the country and ranked first in South China.
Since its establishment, the South China University of Technology has trained more than 510,000 students of all types in higher education for the country. A large number of graduates have become China’s backbone of science and technology, well-known entrepreneurs and leading cadres. The school is known as the cradle of engineers and entrepreneurs, and its graduate employment rate has been among the top universities in the country and universities in Guangdong province for many years. In 2017, it was selected as the national “double innovation” demonstration base.
South China University of Technology promotes the construction of first-class universities with strong original scientific research and innovation capabilities. It has built 27 national scientific research platforms, 185 provincial and provincial scientific research platforms. Since 2009, the number of Chinese patent awards has ranked first among universities in the country; in 2015, patent technology transfer indicators ranked first in the country’s universities.
In 2017, the South China University of Technology Guangzhou International Campus was jointly signed by the Quartet of the Ministry of Education, Guangdong Province, Guangzhou City and South China University of Technology. This is a new engine for the school’s “double first-class” construction and development, and also a new exploration of China’s higher education. The campus adopts a “Chinese-oriented, international synergy” approach, relying on the existing academic discipline resources and scientific and technological characteristics of the school, and has joined forces with Oxford University, University of Michigan, and no fewer than 20 world-renowned first-class universities to strive to achieve a high level. , International, research-oriented, world-class demonstration campus with new engineering characteristics.
Starting from a new historical development starting point, the South China University of Technology has set a strategic goal for the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the university, that is, to build a world-class university in 2052. The school will uphold the school motto of “Learning carefully, discerning, distinguishing and acting”, insisting on academic establishment, talent strengthening, open living, and cultural prosperity, and carrying forward the spirit of “honesty, continuous learning, self-improvement, pragmatic innovation, and pursuit of excellence.” It is an important opportunity for the construction of “double first-class” and the construction of Guangzhou International Campus. It insists on connotative development, deepens comprehensive reform, comprehensively improves quality, and strives for the goal of a world-class university.
